Hey everybody. So, life's been busy. In case you weren't aware, we are moving to Oklahoma! In just a few weeks we are heading to Edmond, Oklahoma. I (adam) am taking a new job at YouVersion.com. And if that weren't enough, we are going to be having another baby in May! Exciting times in the Bouse House.
Because of our new life adventures, we are going to start fresh and clean with a new blog. So, this post and maybe another before we will officially switch over. We will post links here and on Facebook so everybody can follow along as we head west.
For now, I'm going to include a video of Jack playing in the leaves today:
It really is not a very interesting video, but it's the best we've got. Because of the humidity and salt water, we weren't able to shoot much video. But nonetheless, here is Jack arriving at the beach and seeing the ocean for the very first time:
Here are some more pictures from our trip to the beach.
Overall, a great success and loads of fun.
Jack is now part of the 5th generation from my dad's side of the family to visit Holden Beach, North Carolina.
The big story of the week is that Jack has mastered hurling himself out of his pack-n-play. From day one, he thought it was hilarious to jump out. So, we had to transition him to sleeping in a real bed every nap and every night. Every morning began, promptly at 6:30, with a "thud" and a scamper - followed by a "mommy! daddy!" from about four inches away.
Jack discovered he could fit under the cabinets.
He used it as a place to escape once he swiped pancakes off the counter.
He loved playing in the water - especially the hose.
Here's the ridiculous hat we made him wear for a few days. He loved to dig in the sand.
Walking across the beach with Grandpa Roundtree.
He loved to shove things into the sand.
And he wasn't afraid of the water. He kept calling it "pool."
Doing dishes with grandma one morning.
We took a kiddie pool so he could play on the deck.
And we tried to take a family picture - but he is so easily distracted.
And our camera was uber-sensitive to the moisture and only worked half the time.
